High-tensiled cyber-metal will uncover your inner fears and plunge you into the dreadful abyss of mankind's death. Social collapse, civilization's demise, global war and universal cataclysm; humanity's self destruction and non-existence – all that shape the concept of VERGELTUNG's work. The very name of the band embodies the cruel truth about the technology progress driven by the development of arms that bring mass destruction and death. It's not a secret that first rockets were built not to explore space and travel to the moon but rather to attack England and the US.
VERGELTUNG's beginning dates back in 2002, when LEXX (keyboards), KOT''h (guitar) & EVG (drums) left Azeroth, one of the most successful Russian black metal acts (released 4 albums, including a live one; supported Behemoth and Children of Bodom) to realize some new ideas beyond black metal concept.
VERGELTUNG is especially meticulous about their live performances, which are the band's strong point. Apart from regular gigs played locally, the band appeared at Rock Palace 2007 together with Grave and Dismember, made a few appearances in Russia and Finland with Let Me Dream, their old friends.
In summer 2006 VERGELTUNG set about recording their debut album in NEVA studios. The whole process took much longer than expected but this happened to be only beneficial for the album. In August 2007 EVG managed to rescue the St. Petersburg performance of Dezperadoz that was about to be cancelled because their drummer fell sick just before the concert. Within one day EVG learnt the whole set and joined the band to play the gig. As a consequence of this the band got in touch with the famous Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69, Axxis, Krokus, Angra etc) who agreed to mix the album. The mixed album was mastered at Cutting Room Studio, Sweden.
